Last Friday we got the new girls, and they are just so cute. In the past we have waited until April or May to get baby chicks, but then we don't end up getting eggs until August (because it takes about 4 months for them to mature enough and start laying). We decided to get a head start this year.
(from left to right)
Augness, Ben Ten, and Percy Jackson
will lay green or blue eggs
The Black Sexlinks
Mrs. Featherbottom-red beak
Jane Doe-black beak
will lay brown eggs, chosen because they are exceptional egg layers
The Barred Rock
Basil- she is my chicken, she is so petite and cute with a little patch of white on top of her head
She will lay brown eggs and I chose her because I love the look of them when they are full grown.
Do you have chickens, are you going to get chickens this year, still debating, or is it out of the question?
